    All grapes are picked by hand, separately handled according to variety and gently pressed to individual vats for a natural cold settling. After a day of rest, the Roussanne component is racked to fermenters, Marsanne and Viognier are filled to a selection of seasoned French oak barriques, for a rich barrel vinification in the traditional Rhone Valley way. Each parcel is treated to a slow indigenous fermentation, followed by a term of seven months maturation on fine lees prior to assemblage.
